Domus Aurea - Review

Built by the famous Roman Emperor Nero, this place was built to bear testimony to the splendor and extravagance of the Roman aristocracy. The area comprised a huge portico villa that was built upon tremendous landscapes on the slope of the Palatine Hill.

Domus Aurea remains popular to this day and will forever remain immortalized in the books of history because it was built on the site of the ‘Great Fire’ in 64 AD. Nero cleared out the villas belonging to the aristocracy in order to facilitate this structure adorned with gold leaves. The original premises was sprawled over three hundred acres and had everything from manmade lakes to ivory veneers and walls with extensive frescoes.

Today, only ruins stand in its place and it continues to be a major draw for tourists. People do not need to visit this site separately as they can include it in their tour of the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. Commonly, there are no tickets to this site in particular as all costs are included in the ticket to the Palatine Hill and The Colloseum.

Domus Aurea, Rome Reviews

  • Still under excavation so you must wear lovely attractive hard hats... unique experience to tour a live excavation site while in The Eternal City! Amazing preservation of the decor! A must see if it’s open during your stay!

  • If you can (and are fascinated by ancient empires), take a guided tour to explore emperor Nero's former temple. It lets you explore an actual archeological site of immense importance, including a virtual reality experience that transports you 2000 years back in time. Amazing.

  • Emperor Nero’s ‘Golden House’ is an incredible archaeological site that has only recently been opened to the public for guided tours on weekends to help fund ongoing restorations of the ancient villa. This enormous palace dates back to 64 AD and was built after a great fire raised much of the city to the ground; it extended through many of Rome’s famous Seven Hills, including the Palatine, Esquiline, Oppian and Caelian hills and contained as many as 300 rooms. It was covered in fresco-ed, gold leaf, stucco and precious stones, making it one of the most sumptuous palaces ever built in history.

  • A brilliant experience with excellent multimedia enhancement. Beware, it is cold, damp and in places dirty and wet under foot but this is notified well in advance. Our guide was obviously very knowledgeable but not always the best at explaining things so that we novices could understand the complexities of the history and archaeology. She seemed to be rushed and trying to cram in all the information into too short a time. There was never time for us to ask for clarification or for questions.

  • Book in advance for the tour and follow advice from other posters on finding the entrance. The virtual reality portion is short, but amazing.
